Duck Duck Goose #ChewyInfluencer

Meowllo everypawdy. As ya’ know we’s been re-workin’ our days and postys here. We now have Service Cats Monday, Chaplain Dezi’s Blest Sunday’s, and then nuffin’. We also regularly write postys on Wednesdays and Furidays, but we don’t have a name to give ‘em yet. And why is dat? Well cuz we do write reviews, but not enuff to give them their own day each week. And we write update posty’s and VET postys, but fankfullly not nearly enuff to even give them a day a month. Raena would Amen dat, big time. So fur now you’re just gonna get a toss up Wednesday and Furiday till we figger it all out. And today’s gonna be one of those reviews.

 Dezi sits in a chewy box

As most of ya’ know we’re Chewy Influencers and they send us a couple purroducts every month to try out and tell you all ‘bout. Well when we got our box this month we couldn’t wait to jump right in. Some of you may ‘member me’s little health scare a little over a year ago and da subsequent nom changes mommy made ‘round here. She’d like me and Raena to be eatin’ a totally raw diet, but me’s just not ready fur dat yet, so we’s eat da next bestest thing, freeze dried raw.

 Stella and Chewy's Duck duck gose freeze dried cat food

So when mommy opened da box and we saw a bag of Stella and Chewy’s Duck, Duck, Goose freeze dried cat food, we thought it was dinner time. Furst let me tell ya’ a little ‘bout da freeze dryin’ purrocess. Freeze dryin’ locks in vital proteins, vitamins, minerals, natural enzymes and amino acids dat us kitties need. It also locks in da flavor so dat it still tastes furesh. Let’s see what da Chewy website says ‘bout Stella and Chewy’s freeze dried cat food. 

Key Benefits

  • Suitable for all stages of life

  • Includes parsley for added vitamin K

  • Naturally preserved with mixed tocopherols

  • Pumpkin seed aids in digestion

  • Grain-free & Gluten-free formula reduces allergic reactions

  • Made in the USA!

Here’s da ingredient list fur da Duck, Duck Goose dinner: 

 

Duck (Ground with Bone), Turkey, Turkey Liver, Goose, Turkey Gizzard, Pumpkin Seed, Potassium Chloride, Sodium Phosphate Monobasic, Choline Chloride, Dried Pediococcus Acidilactici Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus Acidophilus Fermentation Product, Dried Bifidobacterium Longum Fermentation Product, Dried Enterococcus Faecium Fermentation Product, Taurine, Tocopherols (Preservative), Zinc Proteinate, Zinc Sulfate, Iron Sulfate, Iron Proteinate, Vitamin E Supplement, Niacin, Copper Sulfate, Copper Proteinate, Riboflavin, Manganese Sulfate, Sodium Selenite, Manganese Proteinate, Thiamine Monnitrate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid, Calcium Iodate, Vitamin B12 Supplement.

Well we don’t see any of those questionable ingredients dat so many worry ‘bout and avoid. And maybe a couple little known facts ’bout an ingredient or two. Did you know dat parsley also helps with bad breath? And punkin’ seeds are pawrt of a natural de-wormer. Me knows all ’bout dat one cuz mommy used it with me when me was a baby. Anyways, da noms also come in several flavors and a doggy furmula too. And they recently started makin’ it available in several sizes. We received da 9 ounce bag, but it’s also available in a 3.5 oz. 12 oz. and 18 oz. bag dat we have on auto ship. Purrice ranges from $8.99 to $35.99 and this is a complete and balanced meal fur all life stages. So let’s get to da tastin’ and testin’.

 Bowl of Stella and Chewy's duck duck goose freeze dried nuggetsStraight outta da bag, no water added.

As you know, we always tell da truth, so dat bein’ said, we already eat Stella and Chewy’s Duck, Duck, Goose freeze dried dinner on a regular basis. It can be fed straight outta da bag, da way we like it, or with added water or broth. Da little nuggets are soft and mommy says there’s a small bone in each peace almost. She knows dat cuz she has to break each piece in half fur me. Yes, we are entirely too spoiled. But mommy says she wouldn’t have it any other way. Anyways, me luvs Stella and Chewy’s Duck, Duck, Goose. Sometimes me will pick it outta da plate and eat it furst. So me gives it a full four paws up.

(Dezi yells over her shoulder) Raena!!! Do you wanna tell everypawdy what you think ‘bout da noms? 

      

       (Raena running down the hall)  Yes Sissy, fank you. I’s was in da pawdee box. Oh Catness, we’s already here. Ya’ll just ignore dat furst pawrt. (stretches paws and claws and clears throat) Well I’s luv da duck, duck, goose noms. I’s always pick ‘em outta da plate and eat those nuggets furst. They fur sure get a 4 paws up from me. And me luvs how mommy calls us to dinner. She says, “Come on girls it’s time for some duck, duck, gooooooooose.” 

 Raena eating freeze dried cat food

Yeah Raena, mommy can be silly sometimes can’t she?. And speakin’ of mommy, let’s ask her what she thinks ‘bout da Stella and Chewy’s Duck, Duck, Goose noms. 

 Raena peaking out of a chewy box

 

  Thank you girls. I like that it’s nutritious, good for you, doesn’t contain a lot of questionable ingredients, is made here in the USA, and most of all that ya’ll like it. The morsels are very soft and therefore we often get a bag that has a lot of crushed pieces that look a bit like sawdust. Altho’ this would be fine for kitties who eat it with water or broth mixed in (would mix up much like a pate’ food), it means waste for us. Since ya’ll won’t eat it with water or broth we need the nuggets to be intact. Thankfully, Chewy has amazing Customer Service and always makes it right. So I give Stella and Chewy’s Duck, Duck, Goose dinner 2 thumbs up. I would like to mention that there has been some talk about Stella and Chewy recalls. I did some research on this and found only a few recalls and that Stella and Chewy’s voluntarily issued those. I feel completely safe giving this food to you girls. 

 

Fanks mommy. So there ya’ have it, 8 paws total and 2 fumms up fur Stella and Chewy’s Duck, Duck, Goose and Chewy’s Customer Service Team. Now me knows you wanna get your own bag, so head over and check it out. And while you’re there, have a look around. Chewy carries lots of pawsum purroducts fur your furry and non furry furmily members. And you can save a few dollars by settin’ up an auto ship so you never run outta your bestest furiends supplies again. Chewy offers speedy furee shippin’ on all orders of $49.00 or more and a flat rate of $4.95 fur all other orders. To see more reviews this month head on over to da Chewy blog hop.  Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Pure Taste

OMC Da year 2015 is almost over. Me can’t hardly believe it. So much has happened this past year, most of it good. And one of those things is dat we became part of da Chewy Blogging Furmily. We luv Chewy. We told ya’ when we started bloggin’ fur ‘em dat we had been shoppin’ there fur quite sum time, and we still do. Those of ya’ dat be a little older will member da sayin’ “Da customer is always right”. Unfurtunately lots of businesses have furgotten this, but not Chewy. Chewy has pawsum customer service peeps and they still believe da customer’s always right. Ifin you haven’t guessed, it’s time fur our last Chewy review of da year. So let’s get on with it.

Dezi rubs the package of Canidae Pure treats

We received a package of da Canidae Grain Free Pure Taste Treats. Mommy chose da game bird recipe fur us to try cuz we kinda like da duck, goose, quail and such. These treats are made with limited ingredients. Da ingredient list fur our treats is: duck, turkey meal, quail meal, peas, potatoes, canola oil, sweet potatoes, natural flavors and mixed tocopherals (a source of vitamin E). They’re little heart shaped kibbles fur just da right size kitty bite. They come in a 3 oz packet and are available in 4 flavors, chicken, salmon, trout and da game bird recipe dat we got. So what did we think ‘bout ‘em you ask?

Dezi sniffs the bag of Canidae Pure treats

Me ate 3 pieces da minute mommy opened da package. So she got out a few more pieces fur me, to which me purromptly turned up meez nose at. Sis Lexi munched down on quite a few pieces afur walkin’ away. A few days later mommy offered them to me again. Me sniffed at them and turned up meez nose yet again. Sissy gobbled them down again and again. So me has to give these treats 3 paws down. Me gives them one paw up cuz sissy likes ‘em and me luvs anythin’ dat sissy will eat. Me must tell ya’ dat since changin’ meez noms from kibble and canned to fureeze dried raw and canned, these have been da furst kibbley bites mommy has offered to me. And altho’ these treats be good quality mommy was impurressed dat me didn’t want ‘em.

Dezi tries a Canidae Pure treat

Well you might not have liked ‘em Dezi but I fawt they waz grayt. As a lot of ya’ know I don’t have a lot of teefies left, and these little bite size treats are small enuff fur minez few teef to krunch ‘em up afur swallowin’. And I luv, luv, luv me sum duck. So I give them 4 paws up. 

Lexi smells the Canidae Pure treats in mommy's hand

Meez so glad you like ‘em sissy. So what did mommy think? Well she was very happy dat protein in da furm of a meat was da furst ingredient but wuld have spected no less from Canidae. Because of meez recent bout with da cystits, mommy wasn’t so happy ‘bout all da starch; not one type of potato but 2 are listed. And as ya’ know starch turns to sugar in da body and taxes da liver and kidneys. But as a treat dat gets fed in small purrtions and only occasionally she gave them a fumm up. Also cuz sis Lexi wuld eat them and findin’ things she likes these days gets harder and harder. So there ya’ have it, 1 fumm and 5 paws up fur da Canidae Grain Free Pure Taste cat treats.

As with all our Chewy reviews we got no money fur this review but did receive da treats to try fur furee. And we only bring ya’ things we think you might be innerested in dat we use or have tried ourselves. And we always tell ya’ like it is, good, bad or otherwise.

So this pawt makes mommy happy, but what ‘bout us? What did we fink? Me liked ‘em just fine. Me be a little pickier than maybe da avewage kitty (least dat’s what mommy sez), but they wuz purretty good. So me gives ‘em 2 paws up. So how ‘bout sissy you ask?. She luvved ‘em. All paws in fwum her. She liked ‘em so well mommy’s been givin’ her sum wiff each meal. And she scawfs ‘em down. They also come in chicken, beef, lamb and rabbit. And they make ‘em fur doggies too. Da duck wuz purretty soft and so da bigger pieces wuz easy to bweak into smaller pieces and it cwumbles fairly well too, so it makes a gweat topper. So ifin yous lookin’ fur a good fur ya’ low calowie tweat or food spwinkle, you might just wanna give these a twy. Me finks me will go and hav a foo pieces now. By da way, there’s no goose, me dusn’t know where mommy got dat. Hers sed a lot of you hoomans might member it, but we didn’t get no goose. Maybe nex time.    

Till da nex time…………………….Be Blest!!!
